Remembering Lloyd Snyder
In September 2018, Lloyd Snyder – best known for uncovering fundamental principles in liquid chromatography – passed away at the age of 87. These recollections by four colleagues and friends paint a picture of Lloyd as a generous and gifted scientist – and a wonderful human being.
Giant of Chromatography
I was very saddened to learn of the passing of Lloyd Snyder, a true giant in the field of chromatography – and one whose contributions have been truly seminal. I knew Lloyd for 50 years; in the late 1960s and early 1970s we collaborated on multiple projects, including co-authoring the textbook “An Introduction to Separation Science” with Csaba Horváth. In the early 1980s, when Lloyd was at Technicon, we developed a high-throughput LC clinical assay technology – boxcar chromatography. John Dolan was a postdoc in my lab at that time, and he went to work for Lloyd at Technicon. The rest is history.
